Oakwood City Schools will release students an hour early on Tuesday, Nov. 12 for the funeral procession for Dayton Police Detective Jorge Del Rio.
The procession will travel through Oakwood on Far Hills Avenue, limiting and eventually stopping travel starting at 3 p.m. and continuing for an hour.
Residents are asked to avoid traveling or crossing Far Hills Avenue at this time.
Oakwood School officials are working with partners at Kettering schools to coordinate transport for kindergarten students who ride buses in the afternoon. They plan to share information with families directly as soon as their plans are finalized.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Detective Del Rio’s family, friends and brothers in blue in this difficult time,” Traci Hale, Oakwood City Schools community relations director said. “We appreciate Det. Del Rio’s life-long service and sacrifice to keep our community safe.”
